We specialize in producing high-quality, trending content covering both U.S. and foreign destinations which we disseminate through our superior print publications, cutting-edge websites, newsletters and social media channels. Our office is in the Chicago west suburban community of Willowbrook, about 45 minutes from downtown Chicago. We are seeking dedicated individuals who wish to use this opportunity to polish their writing skills and learn how to plan and craft content that takes into consideration all the elements needed for successful consumption. Those whom we accept and work toward this goal will emerge as more informed and talented writers, better prepared to enter the professional writing field.
What Will You Be Doing?
We offer our interns the opportunity to bolster their writing portfolio and receive guidance and training from experts in content creation for both print and online publication, while gaining experience working within a professional atmosphere. Interns research and write articles for print publications and websites. Interns also assist the editorial department in story research and photography acquisition. Interns communicate with clients in various capacities via phone and/or email.

Our typical interns are pursuing a track in Journalism, Public Relations or English, though we have had Marketing and Business successfully complete our internship program. Students with travel experience are encouraged to apply!
What Are The Benefits?
Interns receive hands-on work from day one and come away with both business experience and a portfolio of published writing samples. There is also the possibility to travel regionally during the end of the internship, and the potential for freelance opportunities upon successful completion of internship.
